So, about a year and a half ago, we bought a house! Awesome. For the first time, I have a back yard and a front yard and a lawn and... stuff
, and I don't know, maybe because I'm old and boring now, I've started to give a crap about making my lawn look nice. Something is really starting to piss me off...
We're in Michigan, if that helps from a geographical perspective.
a wide shot of the scene of the battle. This
is the foe. And this
. And this
My first thought was my old nemesis, Glechoma hederacea
, or plain old ground ivy, but it doesn't seem quite right. The leaves don't look the right shape, and each of these little buggers seems autonomous, as opposed to being part of some kind of hive mind.
The other crazy idea I had is that maybe the seeds from the tree were falling down and germinating and sprouting, but that's crazy, right? .....Right?
Other thoughts? I just want to know what it is. So help me identify, hive mind!
